Pine City Junior Killed In Car Crash

Monday, March 26th, 2012 at 6:21 am

A one car accident over the weekend killed a Pine City girl on Highway 61 in Hinckley.

On Friday night, a car being driven by Pine City junior Haylie Samuelson failed to navigate a sharp turn and flipped over killing Samuelson and sending a female passenger in that same vehicle to the hospital. KARE 11 reports that friends told authorities Samuelson may have been texting while driving before the accident, but that hasn’t been confirmed by authorities yet.

The passenger of the vehicle was released from North Memorial on Sunday.

The exact cause of the accident that took the life of Haylie Samuelson still remains unclear. The Sheriff’s office is investigating.

    So sorry for the family & friends of this young lady. My thoughts and prayer are with everyone effected by this accident. Please let’s remind ourselves as well as our kids that we need to wear seat belts and stay attentive while driving. It’s so easy to lose control and in the blink of an eye so much can be lost.
    My sincere condolences to Sharon.
